Philippine Weather Forecast: Temperatures continue to dip

We welcome colder nights and mornings as the Northeast Monsoon or Amihan affects the entire country.
 
Amihan refers to cold and dry air from Mainland China where winter is in progress. In an interview with Panahon TV, PAGASA Weather Forecaster Meno Mendoza said that this weather system usually peaks between January and February; hence the 9.2 degrees Celsius recorded in Baguio City yesterday, the city’s lowest temperature this 2017.

Aside from the cold weather, the Amihan also brings rains. Today, cloudy skies with chances of lights rains will prevail in the regions of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera, Bicol, Eastern Visayas, Caraga, Davao and the provinces of Aurora, Quezon and Rizal.
 
Meanwhile, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains will prevail in Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
 
Due to strong winds caused by the Northeast Monsoon, gale warning remains in the northern seaboards of Northern Luzon and Visayas, as well as in the western seaboards of Luzon.
